BoxyCharm – April 2015

Hello Fellow Goo Horders!

Look at that…. It’s already May! Wow. Can you believe it? We’re getting Sneak Peeks for this month’s box.. I’m so late!

Here’s April’s BoxyCharm Review.


The theme is April Bloom. And I still love the pink crinkle paper.. and Simon the Wonder Cat is still trying to eat it.


Coolway Hair Smoothing Lotion – This stuff is awesome! It totally smooths the hair and tames the frizzes. It’s definitely a lotion, but it’s lightweight. The smell is clean with a touch of mint. This stuff adds a lot of shine. Blowdrying is so much easier. It also makes using a flat urn easier, too. I love this stuff!! It makes my hair look better. Retails for $24.95


Ofra Derma Mineral Powder in Pink Sapphire-  This stuff is SHIMMER! Nuthin’ but SHIMMA! Very soft blendable. They say you can you is on you skin and hair. Also, contains a a natural sunscreen. I’m thinking of using it as a highlighter and a blush topper. Full Size $35.00


Vincent Longo Duo Eye Pencil in Fawn and Brown –  Yay eyeliner! This brown is super! It’s rich and dark. I love it because it’s not red based. It’s a perfect dark cool brown. The fawn is a very pretty shimmery taupe. I like to west it smudged all over the lid. These liners don’t tug or pull. This might be my favorite thing in the box… (This and the last item I mention) Full Size $26.00


Harvey Prince Perfume in Signature – I like that we occasionally get perfume samples. Unfortunately, most perfume just doesn’t work on me. Things turn strange on my skin.

Here’s the notes:  Fresh Citrus, Japanese Mikan, Pink Grapefruit, Hawaiian Jasmine, Sacred Lotus, Rajnigandha (Tuberose), Japanese Honeysuckle, Exotic Amber, Madagascar Vanilla, & Sexy Patchouli. 

It’s clean and bright, maybe a little spicy skin in there..I wish this worked on me. There’s a few notes that I like, but there’s something that is not quite good on me. EDIT: As the top notes mellow out it’s MUCH nicer on me. Retail price $21.00


Coastal Scents in Reveal 2 – Dats Right! A whole palette. A whole freakin’ eyeshadow palette!!!  There are 20 shadows. A good mix of matte and shimmers. They are soft and pigmented. The bottom row is more maroon and rose based. The top row is more peach based. These are just lovely. The packaging is slim, great for travel. Think of how many looks you can do with this puppy! You usually can get this palette for $19.95

Here are swatches of the Pink Sapphire Powder and The Duo Eyeliner. The eyeliner is showing a little more warm than it really is.

The goal of this box is about $127. It was a fantastic box! Dooooooood! This subscription is completely worth the $21.

You know the next drill.. 🙂

BoxyCharm – March 2015

Hello All!

It’s subscription box review time. We’re going to start with BoxyCharm.


I love me some BoxyCharm. The crinkly paper drives my cat and me wild. So fun! He likes to eat it. I don’t.



Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray – I’ve been using this for a bit now. I don’t think I’ve really seen a difference. It smells fresh. Perhaps it’s just not for me. Oh well. Small size is $11

What they say:

Beat the heat. Defend hair against heat styling with 450 F heat protection. Oscar Blandi’s dry spray formula protects from all hot tools for less damage and more healthy shine.

  • Nourishes & Strengthens
  • Prevents breakage

Key ingredients:

  • Patented Polymer Complex clinically proven to protect hair from heat & prevent breakage
  • Keratin Proteins nourish & strengthen
  • Fragrance: Lemon Verbena neutralizes odor

Formulated without alcohol & parabens.


LVX Nail Polish in Mynt –  I wanted to love this. I tried it on plain nails and with a base coat. I couldn’t get a smooth, non-streaky finish. The color is darling and so Spring like! Full size is $16.00

What their site says:

Stimulating and revitalizing, this cool mint is the perfect summer pastel. Mynt pays homage to the significant prevalence of green this season. Invigorating and powerful, this serene green will prevail as a top choice for the warm summer days that are ahead of USA.


OFRA Black Eyeliner –  It’s a black eyeliner! 🙂 It smokes out really nice. Lasts a fair amount of time. It’s a basic wood eyeliner. Full Size… Retails $13.00

What they say:

Water resistant pencil suitable for the most sensitive eye & lip areas. Created with a synthetic beeswax base for a smooth, soft and long lasting application.


Tarte LipSurgence in Charmed – Another item I wanted to love. Out of the box it broke. The color is too pale for me, but it is moisturizing and tingly! It’s full of good things for you lips. Full Size… $24.00

Here’s what the site says:

tarte’s iconic lip tint that’s become a staple in celebrity and beauty editor makeup bags alike.

Product Performance: This award-winning, 3-in-1 lip tint offers all the benefits of a lipstick, lip gloss and a creamy balm while delivering rich, complexion-enhancing pigment and keeping lips hydrated and refreshed all day. Infused with skinvigorating™ ingredients like vitamins C & E and jojoba seed oil, the nourishing formula moisturizes and smooths lips for a younger-looking pout with a refreshing burst of peppermint. Simply twist up the automatic pencil tip and glide it over lips to deliver sheer color and a surge of moisture for a plumped-up, luscious appearance.

Powered By: 
•  vitamin C: antioxidant free radical fighter that helps prevent premature signs of aging, while brightening skin
•  vitamin E: natural preservative that also acts as an anti-inflammatory emollient and antioxidant
•  jojoba seed oil: natural soothing extract that leaves lips soft, supple and smooth


Previse Skin Care Nutrify – Now this item makes the whole box fabuuuuulous. This is a tonic/serum item. You use it after you wash and tone, before moisturizer. I’m just getting into skincare. I’m 41. Extra steps makes me roll my eyes. I use a face wipe, a toner (which I love, it may just show up in my March Faves) and then slap some moisturizer on. I do all of this while watching Beauty Guru videos on YouTube. Recently, I added this to my routine. I didn’t know if it was doing anything, I seemed to look fresher, glowier. A friend was over this week and without prompting told me my skin was looking great. So, I’ll be using this until the last drop. It doesn’t irritate my weird, strange sensitive skin. (Sensitive skin items have made me rash out. Weird, right?) It’s not oily. Feels like a thick water upon application. After a few minutes it mattifies a little. I’m a fan.  Full Size. $48.00 (This is more than twice what the box costs!!)

What they say:

Our potent antioxidant elixir helps to hydrate your skin. Nutrify is not a serum or toner. Nutrify is oil-free and non-astringent. Step 2.0 in our three-step series, Nutrify follows Purify, our sulfate-free wash. Nutrify helps hydrate skin, fights free radicals and waterborne pollutants or additives like chlorine.

That’s the March BoxyCharm! Total worth? Siri tells me it’s $112.
